How Elipran Tablet works

Migraine headaches are thought to result from the dilatation of blood vessels in the brain and release of vasoactive and pro-inflammatory peptides (chemical messenger) from sensory nerve endings. Elipran 20 Tablet is a selective 5-hydroxytryptamine 1B/1D receptor agonist. It works by constricting (narrowing) these blood vessels and prevents the release of the chemical messenger in the nerve endings, thereby relieving the migraine headaches.
